Looking for the perfect outfit for exploring the city in the warmer months to come? Try styling a black drop-waist dress and glitter kicks for a casual look with a playful flare. Black dresses are always chic. Style it with your heels for work and quickly swap them for your Keds before running a few errands or meeting friends in the city!

At my work place, we can only wear jeans on casual Friday, so naturally I found another way to incorporate denim. Denim button-ups are so easy to transition from winter to summer. It was still pretty chilly when I chose this look, but I’ll definitely be styling my denim shirt with shorts and skirts in the months to come. I’ve linked a few denim options above that I’m currently loving…
When the weather is gloomy, it’s hard to feel motivated throughout the week. That’s where the power of brights comes in! I find that throwing on a bright blouse, jacket, or accessory, can completely turn your day around. Hot pink and orange automatically make me think of Spring and Summer, and let’s face it, we all love those few months out of the year. Sunshine, patios, picnics, barbecues, and pool time — need I say more? Fortunately, Spring is just around the corner, but until then I’ll have to settle for bright layers!
Starting off the week with a laid-back look that makes a statement. I love that these leggings aren’t your traditional leopard print. The black and gold leopard give this effortless look a little extra edge. However, if you are looking for a more feminine way to style these, try pairing them with a skirt and heels for a flirty and fun look!

Once again, I’m wearing a black and gray combo. I can’t seem to get enough of these shades, but adding the fuchsia bag gives the look a focal point. On a side note, I’m loving the look of these midi boots with patterned tights, and it doesn’t hurt that they are extremely comfortable. I’ve been wearing them to work all week, and they were definitely worth the money!

I apologize for the silence the past couple of days, there just aren’t enough hours in the day sometimes! Decided to pull out this oldie, but goodie last week for work, and I’m so glad I did. I purchased this dress a few years ago from Forever 21, and I forgot how much I love it. Watercolor and ruffles never get old! This dress is classy enough for a special event, but also appropriate for a Monday meeting. I always keep my eye out in Forever 21 for similar styles that I can use for work and play.

It’s hard to believe that I was wearing a beanie, winter coat, and gloves just two days before this outfit. It felt so great to be able to walk out of the house with a lightweight shirt and blazer, although sometimes that can be a little too basic. Pairing the outfit with a statement necklace and earrings is the perfect way to add a little glam to your look. I still can’t get over how much this necklace and earrings look like J.Crew pieces! My mom managed to snag both of these gorgeous accessories from T.J.Maxx, and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve been dying for a pair of jeweled studs, and was thrilled when she gave me these as an early birthday present. You can never have enough sparkle! 😉
Looking polished in the winter months can often pose a challenge, especially on those days when all you want is to stay in your pajamas with a cup of hot tea. I don’t know about you, but I go from hot to cold multiple times while at work and having layers that I can easily remove at my desk is crucial. Layering the turtleneck sweater, faux fur vest, and winter coat was perfect for the outdoor weather, yet simple enough to remove once inside (although it was so cold, I left the sweater and vest on all day)!
P.S. Loved getting to showcase my Tennessee spirit with this gorgeous pumpkin coat 😉

Definitely channeling my inner Rachel Zoe with this look, and I’m loving it! Every girl deserves to be a diva every once in a while, right? Just add some faux fur, a black hat, and oversized shades to your wardrobe, and you’ve hit the jackpot. The best part about this look is that it has a high-end feel without the costly price tag. Several of these items came from T.J.Maxx, so the next time you are searching for a diva-esque look don’t forget to check them out!
